The Balanced Man Program
In 1991, SigEp sent a shockwave through the fraternity world by passing Resolution 37. The resolution, passed by SigEp’s undergraduates and fraternity officials, called for a member development program that would “transform the pledging process… to emphasize achievement in the chapter, campus, and community.”
Focused on continual, holistic member development that promotes balanced living and combats destructive behavior, the Balanced Man Program is more than just a program — it’s the center of the SigEp experience.
The program is founded upon five philosophical tenets:
Equal rights and responsibilities: Full membership upon joining
Continuous Development: Growing throughout life
Accountability: Committing to SigEp’s high standards
Living the Ritual: Incorporating SigEp’s values into everyday life
Mentoring: Maximizing growth through guidance and support
…and takes the form of four self-paced challenges that span throughout the college career
Adjusting and acclimating
…focusing on six areas of development.
